Situations Actions Framework

When you decide process and learning strategy, you can use the Situations Actions Framework.

Environment can be categorize based on the unexpected happens or not. Additionally necessary actions can be categorize as now and infinity.

This MECE categorization is developed based on the Cynefin Framework.

You can position yourself based on the Situation Actions Framework to identify appropriate strategy.


You can select Plan Do See (PDS) model in the Simple segment, the situation where the unexpected does not happen and instantaneous actions needed.

You can use Plan Do Check Act (PDCA) model for the Complicated segment, the situation where the unexpected does not happen and infinity actions needed.

Observe Orient Decide Act (OODA) model is effective for the Chaotic and Complex segments.

Chaotic is situation where the unexpected happens and instantaneous actions needed.

Complex is situation where the unexpected does happen and infinity actions needed.
